Factors that would lead to an upgrade or downgrade of the particular ratings:


Moody’s could upgrade the ratings on the subordinate notes if levels of credit enhancement are greater than necessary to protect investors against current expectations associated with loss. Moody’s then-current anticipation of reduction may become better than the original anticipations because of lower frequency of default by the fundamental obligors or lower depreciation than anticipated of the particular value of the equipment that will secure the particular obligors’ promise of payment. As the primary drivers of efficiency, positive changes in the particular US macro economy plus the condition of the agriculture and construction sectors where the obligors operate can also positively affect the particular ratings.


Moody’s could downgrade the ratings upon the notes if levels of credit improvement are insufficient to protect investors against current objectives of loss. Losses can rise above Moody’s original targets as a result of the higher number of obligor defaults or deterioration in the particular associated with the equipment that secure the particular obligors’ guarantee of transaction. As the primary motorists of functionality, negative modifications in the particular US macro economy or even the situation of the agriculture plus construction industries could also negatively affect the ratings. Other reasons for worse-than-expected performance could include poor maintenance, error on the part of transaction parties, inadequate transaction governance or fraud.

Additionally, Moody’s could downgrade the short-term rating from the Class A-1 notes in the event of a significant slowdown within principal collections in the first year associated with the deal, which could result from, amongst other reasons, high delinquencies or payment deferrals or a servicer disruption that will impacts obligors’ payments.
